The wonderful production of Barrie Kosky's "Orphée aux enfers" is coming to Berlin next season, and the new cast already had a fantastic time rehearsing the operetta. Nadine is off to Munich soon to rehearse and sing two performances of "Das Rheingold" at the Bayerische Staatsoper, a production she last did in 2015.
Gala for new festival
For the opening of the new Weinviertler Festspiele on the Austrian/Czech border, Nadine was asked to perform at the gala concert conducted by Matthias Fletzberger and Levente Török alongside illustrious colleagues, singing excerpts as Erda and Dalila. The video of the "Siegfried" excerpt can be found here:
Sadly, all engagements of the spring and summer have been cancelled without further notice due to the worldwide Corona pandemic, this includes the revival of Pelléas at KOB, the Wesendoncklieder with the Zuger Sinfonietta, Rheingold and Siegfried in Chemnitz, Beethoven's Ninth in Wiesbaden, Götterdämmerung at the Budapest Wagner Days, and Siegfried in concert at the Bregenz Festival. We hope for better times in the future when live music and theater may return. Stay safe!
Siegfried in Chemnitz
Jumping in for a sick colleague, Nadine sang Erda in Siegfried at the Chemnitz Opera and was happy to share the stage with several Bayreuth colleagues.
Nadine sang one of the few concerts that took place this winter and made her debut in Poland, streamed live over the internet and radio, with Beethoven's Mass in C with the NOSPR in Katowice. All spring productions have been postponed to future seasons. As soon as dates are confirmed, the calendar will be updated.
Return to the Hill
An unexpected call from the Bayreuth Festival to take part in the video project "The Loop of the Nibelung" for this year's "Diskurs Bayreuth" by Danish composer Simon Steen-Anderson resulted in a few happy days of filming and singing in and around the Bayreuth Festspielhaus. The resulting film can be seen here:
Magic Flute in London
A new Magic Flute awaited Nadine in the legendary David McVicar production at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, where she gave her long-awaited debut, 22 years after completing her Bachelor's degree at the Royal Academy of Music. Conducted by Leo Hussain and featuring wonderful colleagues, the reviews are in on the Press page! ->
Mahler and Wagner
Mahler's Resurrection Symphony with Ádám Fischer and the Düsseldorfer Symphoniker at the Tonhalle Düsseldorf in April was a resounding success. The three concerts were enthusiastically received and recorded for a new CD production. A fundraiser gala concert of Die Walküre for the Staatstheater Augsburg before Easter brought many illustrious Wagner singers together for a sensational performance with a festival-worthy cast.
As most productions have been moved to subsequent seasons, Nadine is keeping busy preparing her upcoming new roles and concert repertoire. Check out the calendar page for dates until the summer.
Summer workshop etc.
All spring and summer engagements following the Corvid-19 lockdown have been cancelled or postponed. Nadine is currently preparing upcoming roles and can be found giving her first workshop for young singers as part of a virtual summer program. Despite everything, she has yet to develop the urge to start baking...
Orphée in Salzburg
Nadine gave an unconventional role debut as Cupidon in Barrie Kosky's production of Orphée aux enfers at the Salzburg Festival. The acclaimed performance under the musical direction of Enrique Mazzola was recorded among others for ARTE and can still be watched in their media library; it will be published on DVD later. The co-production with the Komische Oper Berlin will be revived there in the spring of 2021.
